Rated 2 out of 5 by from Over rated not worth the money Gun doesn't set nails too well have to use two hands just to get half of them set little heavy for that. I'm a finish carpenter and wanted it for convenience not hassle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transitioning tool This tool was a harder transition for me. I wanted to go cordless and skip the need of a compressor /hose. I never used them before so this was a thrill for me when I put it to use. Great brad nailer. Would recommend to anyone who want to transition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great well designed tool I like that I can adjust the nail depth, the battery life and the power of it. Also, I like that it fits my hand very well. It is a very good tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performance and Style equals flawless Very impressed. After purchasing the 16ga angle finish nailer only to then realize they require 20° nails ( which was VERY frustrating and nearly impossible to find) I can say this gun has performed flawlessly. The No dry shot feature is spot on. Weight is decent. There is a bit if recoil when in single shot mode and in bimp mode there has been times where the nail doesnt fully sink to depth. The only real suggestion I have it to have a smaller nose piece. ( similar to what is on the angled nailer would be ideal. ) All in All i can say without a doubt i am very pleased with this gun. Style and performance are a match. Ive just purchased another 5 for my guys. Well done Milwaukee!

I just bought the 16 gauge and it's true it does not sink the nails deep enough, is there a way to fix it?

or just return it? I played with the depth wheel, it does nail ok when you do the single shot, but on the automatic mode it does not sink the nails enough. Sad
Asked by: Johnnys
No, I bought 3 nail gun 16 Ga and the three of them works the same way, I suggest to return the nail gun. And get different brand.

When does the new GEN2 version come out? I want a 16 finish-nailer that ACTUALLY works, not this model. Make one like the GEN2 18g brad and people will line up to buy it in 16g.
